Check How to install and play Roblox on Linux

While Roblox is not officially supported on Linux, Wine’s compatibility layer for running Windows programs can run Roblox Player and Roblox Studio on Linux.

Running Roblox with Wine requires Wine 6.11 or newer. Starting July 22, 2021, you need to use a development release. Suitably, the latest versions of Wine are available on Arch Linux, Fedora Linux, instable nixpkgs, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and Void Linux, and WineHQ provides binary packages for development versions for Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu.

Install Roblox game on Ubuntu 20.04 / 18.04 LTS Linux

As it is a Windows program, therefore to install it on Linux we only have one option which is to use Wine HQ so we will not give any guarantee that it will work perfectly on your system, however please test it just because it worked fine on our case.

The steps given here will also work for older Ubuntu versions such as 19.04 / 18.04 / 17.04 / 16.04, including Linux Mint.

1. Add the Wine GPG key and the repository

To install the latest version of Wine HQ on your Ubuntu 20.04 LTs Linux, first add your GPG key and then using the second command get the Wine repository on your system.

wget -O – | sudo apt-key add –

sudo apt-add-repository

Also, enable support for 32-bit Artchetecute:

sudo dpkg –add-architecture i386

2. Run the system update

To make sure our system has correctly recognized the newly added repository, run the system update command to rebuild the repository cache.

sudo apt update

3. Install Wine HQ on Ubuntu Linux

Now install Wine HQ, a Windows program loader for Linux operating systems.

sudo apt install –install-recommend winehq-stable

4. Download Roblox Studio & Player launcher for Windows

We cannot download the Roblox configuration directly from the official website where it is available only in AppxBundle or UWP application format that can only be installed using the Microsoft store on Windows 10 or 8. Therefore, here we will download the Windows version 7 from some third party websites like Filehorse. (Don’t worry, it will automatically update to the latest version once installed.) You can also use any other website. Here is the link to get the Roblox executable file on your Linux. Once the download is complete, you will get the RobloxLauncher.exe file in your Linux download directory.

5. Install Roblox with Wine on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Now, just right click on the executable file and select “Open with another application” and then go to the “Wine Windows Program Loader” application.

6. Launch the Studio installation wizard.

Before installing Roblox on Ubuntu Linux, Wine will ask you to install the Gecko and Mono installer for your system. Do that. Once the process is complete, the system will start the Roblox installation wizard and will also update the previous version to the latest available.

7. Allow to launch Roblox Linux desktop icon

You will see the game icon on your Ubuntu desktop, to make it executable, right click on the icon and select the option “Allow launch”.

8. Start this virtual world game

Double click on its shortcut icon to launch the Roblox game on your Ubuntu 20.04 Linux.

9. Login

When it asks you to sign in, sign in to use it more, new users can simply create a new account.
